tri-ing

The SmartTri40 was launched in Cape Town, South Africa, designed for those who want  home comforts and still get somewhere in a reasonable time.  Testing was supposed to be methodical,organised affair, with incremental  performance jumps. This logical approach went out the back door rather  quickly! Multihull sailors doesn’t seem to have any self control. Second day  out Scott from Prosail Asia had to push it to 18kts and then of course Ben  Mienie had to get her over 20kts, all this in 15kts of wind with a Reefed  Main and Jib, not bad for a cruising trimaran with a genset/watermaker/ hot showers/electric stove/microwave and air conditioner. Check it.
